Since my very long flight to China is in economy (wah!), I stare at my beautiful December itinerary and feel better. Of course, I did only pay $300 for the ticket to China. And it makes me feel kind of tough to sit for so long in economy. If I can sit through 20 hours in economy, I CAN DO ANYTHING! (Okay, maybe not.) The flight is actually YYZ-ORD (1.5 hours), ORD-SEA (4 hours), SEA-SFO (2 hours), SFO-PEK (12.5 hours). But it’s broken up into fairly reasonable chunks and I’m hoping it makes the December mini-RTW that much sweeter.
